Here it comes. Finally. This Wednesday, June 5, we mock Atlas Shrugged, Part the First. Look upon John Galt, ye compassionate, and giggle. Or fall asleep.
Two weeks later, on June 19, we take a different view of what it means to free yourself from pesky government intervention with Delta Force 2: The Colombian Connection, a movie that appears to be so incoherent that even it’s IMDb description can’t be followed.
This movie is freely available on YouTube.
Then, on July 3, we’re back to cheap, cheesy sci fi with the 1978 War of the Robots. This Italian film doesn’t seem to have a trailer–or no one has bothered to save it for posterity–but here’s a quick taste.
This one is also all over YouTube for free.
“These all sound awful!” I hear you cry. Yes. Yes, they do. “These must be mocked mercilessly”, you say. Well, then you’re in the right company. The instructions for playing along:
- Start following @MockTM on Twitter.
- Start watching the movie on the appropriate Wednesday at 9 p.m. EDT.
- Once you’ve got the movie going, tweet your snarky comments to @MockTM. Directing our tweets to @MockTM will keep our followers from being overwhelmed with our snark!
- Set up a search for @MockTM on Twitter for the duration so you can follow along with everyone else sharing your pain.
If you have suggestions for other movies that can and should be mocked, send them to @MockTM. Preference will be given to movies that are free or stream on the major media delivery services. Watch the feed, and we’ll set up the calendar for more terrible, mockable movies.
If you’ve missed a mocking, you can catch transcripts and even subtitle files for later watching on the Mock the Movie archive.
